Todd and his family are making the trek from Indianapolis to the comfy confines of Columbus this weekend. Should be a good time, as long as his 2-year old sleeps through the night. I’d hate to have to send him and his mom to the car at 2AM. I’m a tough host.
This weekend also starts off the college football season as the Bucks take on Northern Illinois. This first game should be a nice test for OSU as the Huskies are a good team with a steady QB and a fantastic running back. The edge to OSU is one of size; the Husky defense in particular is mighty mite small (DE’s at around 225..) but seeing as how OSU’s defense is young and in need of a good test before going to Texas, this is the ideal opponent….as long as OSU wins. I was going to go to the game with my dad who is coming up on Saturday (it’s his birthday) but we have hit a small financial hurdle because we close on the old house (finally) at the end of September and we just got the home inspection “fix list” which has some things on it that has drained the “OSU Ticket Fund” for the time being. Yeah, I am an alum but I’m still “new blood” as far as that is concerned and we get crap seats..and I just don’t want to go to a game just to go..I want to see what the hell is going on, so we usually have to go the scalper/eBay route and OSU fans being insane — good tickets are not cheap, particularly when we are preseason #1.
Finally, my Madden PC review is online. It’s the best PC version of Madden maybe ever and, I feel, is better than the Xbox or 360 versions.
Oh, finally (2x) I’m to play my round 2 game this afternoon. I have barely touched the 360 version of NCAA in over week– this could get ugly.
